What modifications will I need to make in order to keep stock steering in my solid axle truck with a four inch spring lift?

Dropped draglink, Ball flip on "J" arm, Lengthen torque arm or move mount. If you are going to rock it carry a couple of extra "J" arms along with the Birfields.

Less chance of breaking the "J" arm if you flip the ball and the steering works better also. X-over is the only way to go!!!!

I also agree with the crossover. I'm getting ready to do that on my '84 Extra cab with 7" Skyjacker springs.

I'm running a Superlift dropped steering arm without flipped balls. You don't need to flip them with a dropped arm. Plus I've seen too many break welds and the balls pop back out again.
